I am 30. I am a blessed girl.... the best husband, 2 sweet /feisty girls, thoughtful friends and a great family. I couldn't ask for anything more {well maybe to stay 29 forever}

Saturday night I got to start celebrating! Some friends put together a party and it was so much fun, I felt so special. There was GREAT food, lots of chocolate and the BEST sangria{wish I had some right now}. I was a horrible photographer and didn't take many pictures, so mad at myself about that! Everything was so pretty, it deserved pictures. oh well, I will never forget.

Every Morning

Caroline waits on the front porch to tell her daddy good bye

One more hug and kiss

off he goes, Caroline takes her same position


he rolls down the window and she yells something informative at him" it might rain, don't get wet" or "herd your cats{that is another post} or "have a good day" or "be nice" .... many other hilarious/ sweet things

"what's for breakfast mommy?" let the day begin......

As you can see I won a blog makeover from the Faboulous K! Thank you Kelly. I was not feeling very creative so she made something pretty and then, boom new blog. I love it! Maybe this will, encourage me to post more often. Please don't hold your breath on that one. Go check her out, you will want to get yourself a new look when you see her stylish designs!

sugar & spice & everything nice

Yesterday Caroline woke up from her nap and asked for a snack. I offered her any kind of berry in the fridge. Frustrated, " no I don't want fruit, I want something SWEET, REALLY REALLY SWEET, with LOTS of sugar!" I am so with her on that one! But of course I didn't tell her that!

school days

First day of Mother's Day Out. She was not in a picture taking kind of mood.

We found one of C's buddies and took a quick picture before before we ventured off to the classrooms. {they have been hunting for rollie pollies during recess, both of their dads hunt (a lot), the rollie pollies better watch out!}

She is having a good time and she LOVES the return of chapel time, she often gets to lead the prayer, which she loves. She is learning some new songs, again a love of hers. And being a former PreK(ish) teacher I am very pleased with the activities they are doing when we enter the classroom. The teachers say she is a joy, friendly, and very helpful. That makes a mamma's heart sing. On a side note, she always helps the crying smaller kids on the playground reassuring them their mommies will always come back. (something she was famous for doing last year, isn't that cute!)

First time in 15 months...

that Susanna's face has NOT looked like this during bath time{ and our ears were NOT bleeding}
and INSTEAD looked like this!
a happy, clean girl!

No lie, the child has cried EVERY time she has taken a bath since she was born. Then bam, she stopped and is enjoying herself. {insert angels' singing}
